a+u 19:02, 581 The Thinking Hand – Takenaka Corporation and Takenaka Carpentary Tools Museum Edited by A+U Publishing Traditional Japanese carpentry is known throughout the world for the skill of its craftsmen. a+u 19:02 explores architecture built using traditional Japanese tools and methods. The wisdom of the craftsman over each era come together to form the historical knowledge of Japanese “craftsmanship”. This idea is reinforced with the introduction of projects by Takenaka Corporation, which combine traditional methods with modern techniques to continue the building tradition. A conversation with three master craftsmen reveals their journey from apprentices and their future goals in preserving the methods that were handed down to them.

a+u 19:03, 582 Álvaro Siza and Eduardo Souto de Moura Edited by A+U Publishing

  Two Pritzker Prize-winning architects, Alvaro Siza and Eduardo Souto de Moura, are featured in a+u 19:03. The Portuguese duo have been collaborating together for the past 45 years, starting when Souto de Moura worked for Siza. The issue features their latest work, including projects they designed together.

a+u 19:05, 584 Mid-Century Modern Houses in New Canaan A+U Publishing

a+u 19:05 features a group of homes built between 1947-1979 by 9 Modern architects, including members of the Harvard Five. The Glass House by Philip Johnson, a well known example from this period, is presented alongside works by Marcel Breuel, Eliot Noyes, Frank Lloyd Wright, Landis Gores, and John Johanson.

An essay by Nuno Grande describes Siza as having an organicist sensibility, contrasted with Souto de Moura’s more rationalist view. Their approaches are apparent in the design of their individual projects. However, the buildings they collaborate on never resemble the work of either, but rather, represent a “third” personality.

Although now collectively called “Mid-century Modern”, no one style dominates these homes in New Canaan. An exclusive view of what these works look like today is captured through new photographs by Micheal Biondo. Guest editor Alan Goldberg, who worked with Eliot Noyes during that era, uses a collection of archive material published for the first time to introduce the thought process that went into their designs.

Graber & Steiger Mongraphie Edited by Hubertus Adam

  Over the years, the ritual of bidding the departed farewell has transformed.

Jean-Jacques Lequeu Laurent Baridon, Jean-Philippe Garric, Martial Guedron & Corinne Le Bitouzé

Cultivating Compassion Humanistic Architecture as Practiced by JJP Architects and Planners J.J. Pan and Partners

  Taking the best projects in the last year from sister publications Shinkenchiku and Jutaku Tokushiu, JA112 is an architectural yearbook. As a recent works issue, it illustrates the architectural trends and movements of 2018. One goal of this issue is to show the designs responding to the changing social and environmental conditions.

  The work of Jean-Jacques Lequeu (1757-1826) work is filled with sumptuous monuments, fictitious factories, and landscapes of invention, alongside self-portraits, grimacing figures, erotic drawings and raw anatomical details. Trained as a draughtsman before the French Revolution, this enigmatic and deviant figure has been forgotten until recently.



  Expo ‘70 in Osaka was conceived in the late 1960s when the world was facing changing values in the midst of social and cultural turbulence. JA 113 is a reprint of selected articles originally published in the May 1970 issue of Shinkenchiku and May/June issue of JA, in commemoration of the upcoming Osaka-Kansai Expo 2025.

  The book Cultivating Compassion: Humanistic Architecture as Practiced by JJP Architects and Planners details the history and development of JJP. It contains 21 completed projects.

#material4.0 Madeleine Frey, Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen (ed.)

Rembrandt in Print An Van Camp

  Henry Wallis: From Pre-Raphaelite to Collector/Connoisseur – delivers the first comprehensive appraisal of this oftenoverlooked Pre-Raphaelite. Composed of three parts - a biography, a catalogue raisonné and a series of important appendices – this book demonstrates the full range of Wallis’s contributions to the world of Victorian art.

  Based on the omnipresent term “Industry 4.0”, #material4.0 presents numerous young international up-and-coming artists, and serves as an intriguing introduction to the most contemporary ideas in digital art. Accompanies an exhibition at Galerie Stadt Sindelfingen 13.

  The result of one man’s dedication to commissioning pictures and gathering plants for the Horticultural Society of London, this is the story of the Reeves Collection. Not only are the hauntingly beautiful Chinese botanical pictures accurate and richly colored portraits of plants, but they stand as a record of plants being cultivated in nineteenth-century Canton and Macau.

  The Ashmolean Museum holds a world-class collection of over 200 prints made by Rembrandt Harmensz van Rijn (16061669). Widely hailed as the greatest painter of the Dutch Golden Age, Rembrandt was also one of the most innovative and experimental printmakers of the seventeenth century. This book presents Rembrandt as an unrivalled storyteller through a selection of over 70 prints from the Ashmolean collection, covering a variety of subjects ranging from 1630 until the late 1650s.

Pedro de Mena The Spanish Bernini Xavier Bray, José Luis Romero Torres Pedro de Mena y Medrano (16281688) is the most highly regarded master of Spanish Baroque sculpture, on a par with his contemporaries, the great seventeenth-century painters Velázquez, Zurbarán and Murillo. Mena’s contributions to Spanish Baroque sculpture are unsurpassed in both technical skill and expressiveness of his religious subjects. His ability to sculpt the human body was remarkable.

A sensitive and critical stance towards abstraction and modernism is what connects the work of Jungerman and Kensmil. The exhibition also interacts with the architecture of the pavilion, designed by Rietveld.

This first monograph of Pedro de Mena shows incredible details and remarkable images of his hyper-realistic sculptures, full of passion. In addition to text by curator Xavier Bray, Pedro de Mena also features important contributions by José Luis Romeo Torres, curator of the exhibition Pedro de Mena, to be held in Málaga in 2019.

Inside the Head of a Collector Neuropsychological Forces at Play Shirley M. Mueller

Heart’s Desire: From Christ, to Crown, to Eros The Watson Gordon Lecture 2018 Cynthia Hahn

Collecting objects gives enormous pleasure to approximately one third of the population. On the other hand, the same pursuit can engender pain. Now, for the first time, scientific research in neuro- and behavioral economics gives us a way to enhance the positive aspects of collecting and minimize the negative.

The Darnley jewel, a heart-shaped masterpiece of the goldsmith’s art, has been deemed a love token, but also an emblem of political ambition. This book shows how the understanding of the heart changed during the Middle Ages, from spiritual locus of the body, to source of devotion to country, to the font of love and sentimentality.

Livre a dessiner de P. Devalenciennes Juliette Trey

Chapels in Roman Churches Form, Function, Meaning Chiara Franceschini, Steven Ostrow, Patrizia Tosini (eds.)

  Pierre Henri de Valenciennes, a young landscape painter from Toulouse, was in Rome (1778-1782) to study art but also to encounter Italy’s light and landscape. Valenciennes rarely copied ancient or modern art, but instead he filled his 96-page sketchbook. This is the first reproduction (almost a facsimile) of this beautiful sketchbook.



Roman church interiors throughout the Early Modern age were endowed with rich historical and visual significance. During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, chapels emerged as sites for the self-representation of individuals, families, and social groups. This volume explores the patronage and the architecture and decoration of ten chapels in different churches of the Papal Capital.

Zadkine By the Sea Flip Bool, Noëlle Chabert, Cathy Corbett. Véronique Gautherin, Feico Hoekstra, Jan Teeuwisse, Siebe Thissen

This beautiful book is the first time the sculptures of Lynn Chadwick and Alberto Giacometti have ever been explicitly compared and contrasted.

This book focuses particularly on Zadkine’s bond with the Netherlands, where his collectors and those who commissioned his work often counted as his friends.

Meera Mukherjee Purity of Vision Dr. Geeti Sen, Dr. Nandini Ghosh,

Ganesh Pyne A Painter of Eloquent Solitude Pranabranjan Ray

Choosing bronze as her favorite medium, little-known Bengali sculptor Meera Mukherjee (1923-1998) formed her own simplistic, modernist, life-like world of sculptures. This volume, for the first time, explores her art and life.

This illustrated volume presents a rich, expansive study of Ganesh Pyne’s (1937-2013) creative career. Through sensitive essays, the author also brings to the fore the shy reticence of the artist himself, who nevertheless took a great interest in Calcutta’s artistic milieu, becoming a member of the Society of Contemporary Artists.

Portraits of Devotion Popular Manorath Paintings from Nathdwara in the Collection of Anil Relia Isabella Nardi

This volume constructs an account of Jangarh Singh Shyam’s prodigious body of work, which founded his legacy and grew into a movement.

The Development of Ink, Printing and Paper in Asia Berthold Laufer

The Spell of Japan Isabel Anderson

Essays on the origins of ink, paper and printing in Asia, tracing the early development of these technologies in China, Korea and Japan, and their later migration westward. This is a concise and highly readable account of an important and complex subject.

It’s 1914 – Isabel Anderson, Boston heiress and wife of the US ambassador to Japan, submerges herself in the rich, little known culture of Imperial Japan, bearing witness first-hand to court custom, art, costume and ritual as few Western visitors have before. Yet her lack of pretension and keen observation allows her to describe the life of the common people of old Japan just as lucidly. An illuminating journey for the modern tourist, the armchair traveler and amateur historian alike.

Lords of Life A History of the Kings of Thailand HRH Prince Chula Chakrabongse of Thailand with new foreword by Barend Jan Terwiel

Wanderings of a Naturalist in India The Western Himalayas and Cashmere Andrew Leith Adams

In this completely revised edition, the text remains the same but there are over 250 new photographs and a wealth of footnotes, together with a new introduction by B. J. Terwiel, a renowned historian of Thailand’s political history.

India is home to one of the richest and most diverse populations of wildlife of any territory on earth. At the beginning of the British Raj (1858) Indian wildlife populations were largely intact – with up to 100,000 tigers in the territory alone. The following 100 years saw this rich heritage greatly depleted. By the mid twentieth century the tiger population was reduced to less than 2,000. Recent Indian and international efforts have attempted to arrest or reverse the damage and today India hosts some 515 wildlife sanctuaries and 18 biosphere reserves. This volume presents a sampling of Indian wildlife in the mid nineteenth century, prior to the devastation that was to follow.

Prince Chula Chakrabongse of Thailand was born in Bangkok in 1908. His childhood in the Grand Palace and his close relationship with the Thai royal family and government in the early twentieth century made him uniquely suitable for writing the history of the Chakri dynasty, who ruled Siam (subsequently known as Thailand) until the change of regime in 1932.

Calcutta Then Kolkata Now Calcutta Then - Sunanda K Datta-Ray & Pramod Kapoor. Kolkata Now - Indrajit Hazra & Anshika Varma

Jodhpur Lancers Michael Creese

Calcutta Then: Calcutta is where it all began. The city symbolized India’s transformation from medievalism to modernity. The British created the framework. The prophets and pioneers who operated within it were Indian. Kolkata Now: Love it, endure it, call it what you will, Kolkata is Life as “kháos” as no other city is.

This is the story of the magnificent Jodhpur Lancers – one of India’s most charismatic cavalry regiments – even as centenary celebrations begin of their finest hour, their extraordinary victory at the Battle of Haifa (now in Israel) in 1918. Laced with anecdotes and “inside stories”, Michael Creese traces the roots of the regiment from its raising by the legendary Sir Pratap Singh to its early actions in China.

Indian Life and People in the 19th Century Company Paintings In The Tapi Collection J.P. Losty & John Keay

Prince Patron & Patriarch Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala Brigadier H.H. Sukhjit Singh & Cynthia Meera Frederick

Defining a distinct style of painting produced in India during the British period and influenced by European artistic norms, this catalog of Company Paintings in the TAPI (Textiles & Art of the People of India) Collection is a unique illustration of the social milieu prevailing in India in the nineteenth century.

The historical crossroads that saw India’s transition from British Imperial rule to Independence coincided with the life of Maharaja Jagatjit Singh, the last Ruler of the erstwhile Princely State of Kapurthala (1872-1949). He was witness to some of the most epochal events, both within India and across the global stage during his reign, which spanned almost 60 years.

Ellora Gilles Béguin. Photographs by Iago Corazza

Gandhi’s Vision Freedom and Beyond Dr Aparna Basu

Ellora lies in the state of Maharashtra, in western central India. This pretty spot, surrounded by lush vegetation, is only a few kilometres from another place of great interest – the Ajanta caves. Ellora has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983 in recognition of its great importance as a repository of wonderful art and as a place of pilgrimage for followers of India’s three great religions: Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.

Gandhi’s Vision: Freedom and Beyond chronicles the principal events leading to India’s independence under Gandhi’s leadership and his vision of a free India. The book commemorates 71 years of Indian independence and is replete with portraits of the Mahatma in action – invoking the spirit of patriotism, uniting people from all religions, regions and social groups across the country. Among those stalwarts who led the freedom movement, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi shines not only for the novel means of non-violence, but also for simultaneously wanting to root out social evils like communal hatred, untouchability and gender disparity. With several such issues espoused by him continuing to dominate the social space, his teachings remain relevant even today.

This book explores a treasure of Indian art, benefitting from photos that do their marvellous subjects justice.

#99 x 911 The History of the Porsche 911 Jörg Walz

The Porsche 911, the epitome of a German sports car, is a world-renowned import success and dream vehicle. In this work, the 99 most important models of the legend are presented chronologically as miniatures in a 1/43rd scale, each with a picture and text page, all put together by author Jörg Walz, a collector since childhood. The author places the snapshots of vehicle miniatures in a “real” environment and presents a well-assorted digital car museum. The charming interplay between a small car model set into a lively background is fascinating. The original spontaneously created photo collection is completely “iPhonographed”, without further aids or artificial arrangements, initially taken for Instagram.

Holy Halls The Secret Car Collection of Mercedes-Benz Christof Vieweg

Porsche 914 50 Years Jürgen Lewandowski

The Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart is one of the largest and most visited industrial museums in the world. But the 160 or so automobiles on display are only a small part of the treasures that form the Mercedes-Benz Classic vehicle collection. Another 1,000 historical models are “parked” in secret places outside Stuttgart – these secret places are called the “Holy Halls”.

In 1969 a very special sports car was born. The 914 rose from a marriage of convenience between Volkswagen and Porsche, because both companies wanted a small, modern and affordable sports car in their product range, but for little cost. Thus it was decided to combine the skills of both manufacturers.

This collection is the treasure trove of the brand. It has existed since 1923 and offers a comprehensive overview of the model history of Mercedes-Benz. For the first time, it has been possible to produce a book with panoramic and detailed shots from the “halls” – from the first Benz batting motor car to the latest Formula 1 racing car.

Introducing the Porsche 911’s little brother...

The result was a light mid-engine sports car with a lively road performance. Even 50 years after its launch, it pleases the eye with its fresh design. Back then it was often ridiculed as a “housewife Porsche” or “Volks-Porsche”, but now, the 914 has come out of the shadow of its big brother the 911 and has a huge fan base; today it lives on in the Boxster and Cayman models.

Porsche 904 Jürgen Lewandowski

The 904, full name Porsche 904 Carrera GTS, was in many ways a special model for Porsche. In a record-breaking development period of 6 months, the Porsche 904 was implemented in 1963. This car is a true model in terms of innovation, and not just for its rapid creation. For homologation (the approval process) as a race car, about 100 units of the Porsche 904 were registered as road vehicles and sold to private customers. The demand was so great that the car soon became a highly exclusive rarity. The distinctive look that characterizes the Porsche design and the combination of technical innovations and low production costs did the rest to give the Porsche 904 a cult status that continues today.

Porsche Drive – Pass Portrait – Gotthard Schweiz – Switzerland – 2106 m Stefan Bogner

After his last project, Escapes, Stefan Bogner returns to the Alps again with this beautifully illustrated book. This time he not only photographed particular routes, but he looked for the ideal tour through the Alps: 3 countries, 14 passes – the perfect little escape for 4 days. Different from Bogner’s photographs in Escapes or Curves, where Bogner presents dreamlike empty streets, Porsche Drive focuses on the journey in Porsche models like Porsche 906, Porsche 911, Porsche 918 and more.

With text by Jürgen Lewandowski and photos by Stefan Bogner, two proven Porsche connoisseurs.

In addition to Bogner’s amazing photographs, Porsche Drive offers information on each route and height profile, allowing the reader to follow his itinerary.

Rogier Vandeweghe established himself as an independent potter in Sint Andries, near Bruges. Under the name Amphora, from 1960 on, his quickly expanding workshop produced entirely hand-thrown vessels. This book is a tribute to Rogier Vandeweghe and his wife, Myranna Pyck, for their unwavering commitment and their continuous quest for high-quality modern beauty in their ceramics.

Drawing on the rich archive of the Sladmore Gallery, this richly illustrated, comprehensive survey explores the work of 40 artists at the forefront of the “Les Animaliers” movement between 1900 and 1950; the heyday of animal sculpture throughout Europe. Includes 350 color photographs, individual biographies, and 2 informative essays.

Day and Dastan Two Novellas Intizar Husain, Nishat Zaidi & Alok Bhalla

Ocean of Melancholy The Tragedy that was Karbala Mir Mosharraf Hossain

Intizar Husain is the finest writer of Urdu prose and the most brilliant storyteller of the post-partition generation. The two novellas, Day and Dastan (Din Aur Dastan), his favorite texts, show his versatility and fictional inventiveness. Day, a realistic story, is a meditation on the cruellest of events to have scarred our times – migrations. In contrast, Dastan is a traditional tale of wonder. Its language is lyrical and exaggerated; its narrative, obsessed with action. It weaves dreams and adventure, heroism and mercy, beauty and love, magic and grace.

One of the best-known works of Mir Mosharraf Hossain, Ocean of Melancholy is an epic historical novel centered around events that led to the battle of Karbala and its aftermath. The book revolves around the tragic story of Hassan and Hussein, grandsons of the great Prophet Muhammad, who were exterminated by their bitter enemy Yazid, the son of the king of Damascus, for his desire for Zainab – Hassan’s beautiful wife – and his greed for the throne of Medina.

Windhorse Warrior R C Friedericks

Windhorse Warrior offers an inside look at the struggles and aspirations of the Tibetan people during the 1950s. It is a tale that weaves together the politics of occupation and resistance, an otherworldly romance between a Chinese communist and an educated Tibetan woman, and the soaring vision of the Tibetan spiritual heart. This is a story that extends beyond the decade in which it is set. Its message is true today in the global context of oppression and disparity, fake news, and injustice. Those who believe in a just and beautiful world will find themselves longing for an “enlightened society” filled with spiritually awakened women and men, free to pursue their true potential and eager to enrich the lives of others.

Karlheinz Stockhausen Klangbilder Kunstmuseum Villa Zanders

Waiting People in Transit Dieter Leistner

In the late 1950s, avant-garde musicians were exploring new ways of expressing their experimental compositions in writing.

Since 1978, Dieter Leistner has been photographing people waiting at public transport stops throughout the world. Whether in Asia or Europe, South America or around the Indian Ocean, in the countryside or in town, under capitalism or socialism – Leitner captures those waiting subtly and with a professional perspective. He opens up a cosmos of instantaneous shots with their own particular personality: sometimes cheerful, sometimes melancholic, sometimes busy, sometimes lonesome. The observer is always part of the composition, recognizing themselves in some of those waiting.

Karlheinz Stockhausen, who was one of the leading pioneers in those days, used every conceivable form in order to give expression to his musical universe like no other. This publication, for the first time ever, provides insights into an aspect of his work that has been previously overlooked. It features drawings showing that Stockhausen developed a unique pictorial language for ideas that could not be expressed through music or words. The book includes sheets that explore performance practices or even present time specifications, different timbres, or dynamics in colors.

Béatrice Helg Robert Wilson, Philippe Piguet, Serge Linares, and Sylviane Dupuis

With her great passion for music, architecture, the theater, and opera, Helg’s photographs create monumental spaces in which sculpture, painting, installations, and most of all light are constantly interwoven. Like a window opening onto the invisible, giving glimpses of the mind, her light-filled world is weirdly beautiful, at once poetic and spiritual. Béatrice Helg’s work ultimately explores the infinite; it is a quest for the absolute, or rather a delving into the boundless identity of an inner mystery. This book presents a selection of her photographs taken over the past 25 years, accompanied by a wonderful original commentary by Robert Wilson, as well as critical writings and poetry by Philippe Piguet, Serge Linares, and Sylviane Dupuis.

Together they created a body of work that is uniformly innovative, elegant and sensitive to place, and realized with care, skill and intelligence. This new monograph documents their remarkable oeuvre as it developed over 6 decades. Introduced by Joseph Rykwert, the book includes critical commentaries by David Dunster, Patrick Hodgkinson and others.

You’ve Got Mail Quirky Belgian Letterboxes Peter Schouten

As a Dutchman living in Belgium, Peter Schouten has an outsider’s view on the country that he loves and is fascinated by. In Belgium, it sometimes seems as if everyone just does as he pleases, unbothered by rules or regulations. Peter wanted to find a way to capture the uniqueness of his surroundings, and found the answer while looking through his photographs of an original house from the sixties. It wasn’t the house itself that grabbed his attention, but the strange letterbox in front of it: it had the shape of a big eagle sitting on a little concrete house. Ever since, Peter has been photographing the weirdest, most puzzling letterboxes all over Belgium. Looking at those photos, you’ll agree with the photographer that the Belgian letterboxes form a unique little piece of the country’s cultural heritage.
